With the URL Content Redirection feature, you can configure specific URLs to open on the client machine or in a remote desktop or application. You can redirect URLs that users type in the Internet Explorer address bar or in an application.
Understanding URL Content Redirection The URL Content Redirection feature supports redirection from a remote desktop or application to a client, and from a client to a remote desktop or application.
Requirements for URL Content Redirection To use the URL Content Redirection feature, your client machines, remote desktop machines, and RDS hosts must meet certain requirements.
Using URL Content Redirection in a Cloud Pod Architecture Environment If you have a Cloud Pod Architecture environment, you can configure global URL content redirection settings in addition to local URL content redirection settings.
Installing Horizon Agent with the URL Content Redirection Feature To use URL content redirection from a remote desktop or application to a client (agent-to-client redirection), or from a client to a remote desktop or application (client-to-agent redirection), you must enable the URL Content Redirection feature when you install Horizon Agent.
Configuring Agent-to-Client Redirection With agent-to-client redirection, Horizon Agent sends the URL to Horizon Client, which opens the default application for the protocol in the URL.
Configuring Client-to-Agent Redirection With client-to-agent redirection, Horizon Client opens a remote desktop or application to handle a URL link that a user clicks on the client. If a remote desktop is opened, the default application for the protocol in the URL processes the URL. If a remote application is opened, the application processes the URL.
